- Enzalase reduces indigestion and gas fast and is recommended by leading doctors
- Only one capsule with the largest meal of the day is required!
As we get older, food begins to move sluggishly through our digestive tract because our body produces fewer digestive enzymes. Bloating, flatulence and a lingering feeling of fullness results. The 12 high potency enzymes in Enzalase work together to prevent indigestion by boosting the body's digestive power. In addition, Enzalase stimulates probiotics with bifidogenic enzymes that release soluble fiber – active probiotics further reduce indigestion. Compared to other enzyme supplements Enzalase has the highest Lipase (fat digesting) activity at 6000 FIP units per capsule and, since fat slows down other digestive enzymes, having high lipase is vital to improving total food digestion. All of the enzymes in Enzalase are protected from stomach acid by a buffered biogel that insures their safe delivery into the intestinal tract (Patent Pending).
What are Enzymes?
Enzymes are biological molecules that act as catalysts to speed up chemical reactions. In a biological cell, almost all of the chemical reactions need enzymes to occur at a rate that is fast enough to support life. Enzymes can be very complicated because there are so many different kinds with as many different functions. So here we elaborate specifically on Digestive Enzymes. Digestive enzymes are essential to the body's ability to digest food. They break down fat, carbohydrates and proteins into smaller building blocks that the body can absorb.
The body produces digestive enzymes in your saliva, stomach, pancreas, and intestinal tract but sometimes this is not enough. Age, poor diet and stress are a few of the factors that can lead to a depleted enzyme production by the body. This leads to incomplete digestion and larger food molecules making it into your lower digestive tract causing indigestion, gas, and bloating. This is when it is necessary to take a digestive enzyme supplement. A good enzyme supplement can assist your body's own digestive enzymes and help assimilate the foods you eat to get the most out of the nutrients they contain. A healthy digestive system is vital to one's overall health. Unfortunately today so many people are inundated with processed foods and other factors that affect the body's ability to digest properly.
Enzalase contains guaranteed activity levels of the 12 most important digestive enzymes, only FDA approved G.R.A.S. enzymes of plant origin are used. Each Enzalase capsule contains:
- Alpha-Amylase: 5,000 SKB
- Alpha-Galactosidase: 165 GaIU
- Bromelain Protease: 150 GDU
- Cellulase: 3,000 CU
- Glucoamylase: 5 AG
- Hemicellulase: 6,400 HCU
- Invertase: 400 SU
- Lactase: 1000 ALU
- Lipase: 6,000 FIP Lipase Units
- Neutral Protease: 5,800 HU
- Papain Protease: 42,500 TU
- Pectinase: 7,500 AJDU
Due to the potency of Enzalase, only one capsules per meal is required. Enzalase is supplied in amber glass bottles containing 50 size "0" Vcaps.
Enzalase stimulates probiotic bacteria in two ways: 1) Its high strength lipase, protease, and carbohydrase enzymes work on food to produce cobiotics (fatty acids, amino acids, and simple sugars) that feed Lactobacillus probiotics in the small intestine and 2) Its high strength fiber digesting cellulase, hemicellulase and pectinase enzymes work to separate soluble fiber prebiotics from insoluble fiber (both types are found in fruits, grains and vegetables) so these important prebiotics can more effectively feed Bifidobacterium probiotics in the large intestine. All of this happens inside you when you take one (1) high potency Enzalase capsule before a meal. Enzalase boosts the effectiveness of probiotics and it can make the difference between probiotics working versus not working for many people (Patent Pending).
Many digestive enzymes are denatured by stomach acid and lose significant strength before they reach the small intestine; lactase, invertase, and lipase are examples of acid sensitive enzymes. Enzalase is produced by a unique process that allows an acid resistant gel to form around the enzymes in the stomach but dissolves in the small intestine releasing them unharmed, insuring the enzymes are active in the intestinal tract (Patent Pending)
High Lipase Activity
Enzalase contains 6,000 FIP units of Lipase activity, the enzyme responsible for fat digestion. Strong lipase activity enhances the effectiveness of the other digestive enzymes in Enzalase by removing fat from the chyme (food mixture) when it leaves the stomach and enters the small intestine. Fat free chyme is a more available substrate for the protein and carbohydrate digesting enzymes and increases their effectiveness activity. Lipase is a very expensive enzyme: Compare the lipase content of Enzalase with that of competitive enzymes supplements, the difference is dramatic.
Enzastim is a unique food grade fat-enulsifier only found in Enzalase. When the chyme enters the small intestine, it depends on the presence of adequate amounts of bile to insure that fats get emulsified. Fats must be emulsified to be digested by lipase. Enzastim provides important insurance that this happens.
Master Supplements Questions & Answers
How do I know if I need an enzyme supplement for digestion?
If you experience indigestion and bloating after a meal, or if food seems to “hang” in your stomach, you will benefit from taking an enzyme supplement. Irregular bowel habits including constipation and diarrhea can also signal a need for enzyme supplementation. If you have such symptoms on a regular basis check with your doctor before taking any supplement.
Most people over 40 can benefit from taking an enzyme supplement for improved digestion but it may not be necessary to take one with every meal. Heavy meals, late dining, spicy meals and meals containing foods not normally eaten are candidates for enzyme supplementation. People over 50 often require an enzyme supplement with lighter meals as well.
I take probiotics and they work sometimes but not all the time, would an enzyme supplement help?
Some will. To be of benefit to probiotics, an enzyme supplement must have strong concentrations (high activity units) of fiber digesting enzymes like cellulase, hemicellulase and pectinase. These enzymes release prebiotic sugars and soluble fibers from vegetables and grains. Once free these prebiotics feed the probiotics so they work better. Enzalase is a new multi-enzyme supplement that contains high levels of prebiotic releasing enzymes.
Can Enzalase replace FOS?
Yes, when you see FOS (a soluble fiber that feeds certain probiotics) declared as a food ingredient, it's there as a synthetic compound. When Enzalase releases FOS from vegetables and grains it's present with other natural compounds that reduce intestinal gas (which can be significant when synthetic FOS is consumed).
Does Enzalase reduce intestinal gas in other ways as well?
The alpha-galactosidase enzyme in Enzalase helps reduce gas produced by intestinal bacteria when raffinose family sugars, present in cabbage, broccoli, beans and other vegetables, are consumed.
Does Enzalase help reduce lactose intolerance?
The lactase enzyme in Enzalase splits lactose (milk sugar) into two simple sugars, glucose and galactose, which are readily absorbed in the intestinal tract. This helps prevent lactose from reaching the colon where anaerobic bacteria consume it producing gas and discomfort.
How does Enzalase benefit my general health?
By improving digestibility of major food types, proteins, fats and carbohydrates, Enzalase's potent enzyme groups help free other nutrients such as vitamins and minerals bound within these foods. Once free they can be absorbed by the small intestine and utilized by the body. For example, much of the magnesium in a steak is bound within muscle tissue, digest the muscle tissue and out comes the Mg.
Enzalase also benefits general health by other mechanisms, when taken between meals, as indicated for the Systemic Health program in this brochure, the protease and lipase enzymes may help encourage circulation.
I've been told that it's not necessary to protect enzymes from stomach acid, is that right?
No. Many enzymes are sensitive to stomach acid and lose activity when held at a pH below 2.5 for an hour or more (typical time spent in the stomach). Lactase, for example, can lose 25% or more of its activity under these conditions, lipase even more. So protection from stomach acid is important and the gel-matrix formula used to Acid-Proof Enzalase (patent pending) is a vital requirement to get full potency (declared enzyme activity units) through into the small intestine.
What is the reason for the high lipase level in Enzalase?
Lipase is the enzyme that digests food fats that coat the food mixture (chyme) when it enters the duodenum portion of the small intestine. If you don't get the fat off the food particles other enzymes can't function effectively since fat interferes with their ability to attach to there substrates. For example, alpha-amylase can't effectively attach to starch (its substrate) and digest it if fat is in the way. Enzalase, with 6,000 FIP lipase units/capsule, is effective at digesting fat so other enzymes can function better.
What is EnzaStim and how does it help Enzalase work better?
EnzaStim is a unique emulsifier (polysorbate 80 on silica – patent pending) that helps the lipase in Enzalase digest fat more effectively. Fat needs to be emulsified (mixed with water) before it can be digested. The body produces bile for this purpose but not always on schedule or in the necessary amounts. EnzaStim provides insurance that emulsification occurs.
Explain what is meant by Enzalase's "Deep Release Technology"?
This was quite a fortuitous discovery. The gel-matrix that gives Enzalase its Acid-Proof protection in the stomach does not completely dissolve in the front part of the small intestine but holds together, with much of its enzyme activity tagging along, until it reaches deep into the intestinal tract. Here, for the first time with an enzyme supplement, a portion of the enzymes deep release and offer a deep digestion response. This is particularly important for the prebiotic release enzymes, the pectinase, cellulase and hemicellulase, as they do better in the lower G.I. tract where peristaltic activity (intestinal motility) is slower.
Can I take Enzalase at the same time I take my probiotic?
Yes, but its best to separate them by 2-3 hours.
What is a good probiotic to take with Enzalase?
The #1 Probiotic is Theralac.
Why do I need to refrigerate Enzalase when other enzyme supplements are stored at room temperature?
All enzymes, like probiotics, are perishable. Typically, enzymes lose 1% of their strength per month. This can jump to 2-5% under elevated temperatures and high humidity. Most enzyme companies will not tell you this. It's okay to hold Enzalase at room temperature for up to three months due to its Totally Inert Packaging (TIP Packaging) in amber glass bottles with moisture and oxygen absorption packets. Store Enzalase under refrigeration when at home to insure potency through the expiration date.
Can I overdose on Enzalase?
By FDA definition, the enzymes in Enzalase are foods and are all generally recognized as safe (G.R.A.S.). Enzalase's recommendation is not to exceed 6 capsules per day. Due to its potency, rarely does one need to use more than one capsule per meal (or one capsule daily for probiotic stimulation).
Will Enzalase interfere with prescription medications?
Generally not, but some prescription drugs do react with enzymes and others may have their action enhanced by enzymes. Always check with your doctor and pharmacist regarding these possible interactions before starting on an enzyme supplement.
What is the most common effect I will experience when taking Enzalase?
The two most common effects reported are:
Improved digestion and greater intestinal comfort after a meal
Improved regularity with reduced bloating and intestinal gas
After 1-2 months a noticeable increase in energy and general well being is often reported as well.
